At Least A 1000 Ways To Eat Oatmeal

Eat Breakfast or Else…

First, why breakfast?  It is extremely important that you start your day off right by fueling up, increasing energy, mental alertness, and giving your brain, body, and muscles the glucose they need to function.  Oatmeal is an awesome (if not the best) way to do just that.

The health benefits gained from regularly eating whole grains are tremendous.  Bad cholesterol levels will decrease(LDLs, low density lipoprotein), while good cholesterol is not affected (HDLs, high density lipoprotein).  In 1997, the Food and Drug Administration allowed whole grain foods to be labeled ” decreased risk of heart disease combined with a low fat diet.”   So yes, just eating oatmeal every morning can dramatically improve your heart health!  Very high in fiber, oatmeal will keep you full for hours too.

Oatmeal is CHEAP, EASY, and QUICK.  So no excuses all you lazy people!

Another great thing about oatmeal is you can put almost anything in it, and get even more nutrients out of your breakfast.  Some of my personal favorites are:  blueberries, sliced almonds, raisins, ground flax seeds, yogurt, peanut butter and jelly(try it before you hate it, yes YOU), apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, chocolate chips, etc…   Any combination of ingredients can be fun.  Get creative with it!

    I looked through the receipes, my favorites were the ones which added peanut butter and yogurt + berries of any kind, then you have tons of whole grains, plus complete protein in the pb and yogurt, and vit C to top it off in the berries.
    Makes me never want to eat ceral again.
    Someone once said to me “Eat breakfast like a king,
    Lunch like a prince, and Dinner like a college student out of financial aid.”
